Barnett's license reinstated by CSAC

Strikeforce heavyweight attraction and former PRIDE FC star Josh Barnett had his mixed martial arts (MMA) license reinstated today (March 5, 2012) during a special hearing in front of the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).

But not without provisions.

"The Warmaster" must consent to "random biological fluid testing" at a time and place determined by the commission prior to his participation at any event held in the state of California.

Barnett, who is expected to fight undefeated division standout Daniel Cormier under the Strikeforce banner on May 19, has been battling the CSAC for over two years to get back in their good graces following his failed drug test back in 2009, one that sank the S.S. Affliction and canceled a late summer superfight against Fedor Emelianenko.

Now he's back, primarily because the state of California "needs good fighters," according to the commission.

They mentioned this on inside MMA last night, since only three of us watch it I thought I would mention it here. :) Anyway, they also said they still don't officially have a contract signed with Barnett, I found that kind of interesting.
